EA-Unreal Engine deal "one of the biggest we've done," says Rein

In an exclusive interview with videogaming247, Epic VP Mark Rein has hinted that today's Unreal Engine 3 deal with EA - in which the publisher extended its license to use the development suite beyond the five UE3 games it already has in production - was a sizeable one, and possibly the largest tech deal in the developer's history.

"It's significantly more than five more games," said Rein. "It's pretty important, yeah. I think it's one of the biggest engine license deals we've done."

And that would be where the majority of Epic's income comes from.

The unreal engines sux for 3rd party....There is maybe one or 2 games that actually produce decent graphics using the Unreal3...There is 10x more games that look worst..look at R6, turok, area51 and many more games...I rather see a developer start from scratch or license a real next gen engine from SONY for multi platform games...I like Gears but that is the only game that really looks good using unreal3...
